The Communities Creating Jobs Board of Directors wish to promote the sale of this book in every County.

 

The book explores the potential of a bottom up regeneration strategy that creates new enterprises in local communities. A small task group of 6-8 people with a good knowledge of local assets and opportunities can complete an audit and report. The report highlights how 10 jobs can be created in urban and rural, large and small, disadvantaged and resourced on mountainside and seaside, in old and new communities throughout the county.

Every community organisation, support agency, and third level institution are encouraged to read the book which includes interesting case study material on how local resources are used to create new jobs, services and facilities. 

How to Purchase: 

Book is available for €20 by emailing Senan: theenterprisingcommunity@gmail.com

Calling all Public Participation Networks and environmentalists!

A license has been granted to BioAtlantis Ltd to mechanically harvest 1860 acres of native kelp from Bantry Bay, Cork.
Niamh O’Donoghue is conducting research on this topic for my Masters dissertation in Coastal and Marine Management in UCC.

The license has sparked conflict as seaweed harvesting in Ireland has traditionally been hand harvested, and this will be the largest industrial scale
native kelp extraction license ever issued in Irish or British waters.

Conversely, harvesting the kelp would enable compounds to be extracted for use as a substitute for antibiotics in the pig and poultry industry, and
could promote further development of Ireland’s seaweed sector.

She would love to hear your perspective on this matter. She attached a very short survey link attached to her email, which seeks to capture the views of stakeholders and individuals,  whether they are aware of this matter or not.
All results will remain anonymous with no link to your identity and it takes less than 4 minutes to complete.

For further information or questions contact Niamh on email:  117221406@umail.ucc.ie.

See the link below to access the survey. Click here:
